Just a few days prior to this discovery, Julia showed me a hole in one of her pairs of pants...in a place that would not be a welcome spot for showing off a patch. Those pants will be patched + worn in the house...but she needed a new pair of pants.
I may make another jumpsuit with the pattern that I was able to fit by making this one...maybe in a breezy, lightweight lawn or a darker colored linen...when the temperatures warm up again. Nothing lost. I'd rather have this beautiful, soft, drapey fabric loved + used + valued. Mission accomplished.
Sewing pattern from Simple Modern Sewing by Shufu To Seikatsu Sha. This copy is from the library. I love all the surprising things we can find there! :)
